Wishing there were a way to get rid of stubborn fat or cellulite? BodyFX offers a safe, noninvasive option for patients to reduce cellulite and body fat without surgery. If you’re looking for body contouring solutions in small areas, BodyFX may be the answer for you.

With years of experience and happy patients, he can help you decide which type of body contouring procedure is best for you.

What is BodyFX?

BodyFX helps reduce stubborn, unwanted fat while significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite. Compared to traditional body contouring methods (like tummy tucks and liposuction) , BodyFX offers a nonsurgical treatment that can be done in just a few visits.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a harmless skin condition caused by fat deposits in the deeper layers of the skin and can be hard to get rid of on your own. Even if you exercise regularly, eat healthy, and lose weight, cellulite may refuse to disappear.

Body contouring treatments like BodyFX and liposuction can reduce and remove cellulite.

Preparing for BodyFX Body Contouring

Because this is a noninvasive procedure, there is minimal preparation needed. If you are on any kind of anticoagulant medication, you should stop taking it for around 7 to 14 days before the treatment. Anticoagulant medicine tends to cause bruising for patients after BodyFX treatment.

On the day of your appointment, all you have to do is wear comfortable clothes and make sure your skin is clean and dry. If you use lotions or other skin care products, avoid applying them until after the procedure. Lotions and body oils can reduce the effectiveness of the device.

How Does BodyFX Body Contouring Work?

The BodyFX machine is a small handheld device that uses radiofrequency energy and heat to get rid of cellulite. The device applies some suction to thoroughly heat the deep tissue and melt away fat cells.

There are no needles, no scalpels, and no pain. Patients report only feeling a mild heating sensation during the procedure. After the procedure, there’s no downtime needed, but the skin will have some mild redness that will go away shortly.

How Soon Can I see Results?

Usually, patients report positive results immediately after the procedure, but the best results take a few months to notice. This is because the heat applied to the fat cells and deep tissue works to melt away fat over a longer period of time. In order to achieve the best results, we recommend planning for six to eight treatments with one treatment per week.

What Areas Does BodyFX Work On?

This procedure is focused on reducing and eliminating cellulite, which occurs most often around the stomach and the upper legs. If you’re looking to improve the skin under your chin and around your neck, you should learn more about Forma.

Is Body FX Permanent?

Yes and no. Because the fat cells are not necessarily removed, they can inflate again if more bodyweight is gained. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will prevent returning fat deposits.
